Bono: Emergency Back Surgery

Bono at World Economic Forum

U2 singer and anti-poverty activist Bono has undergone emergency back surgery in Munich after an injury sustained during training for the next leg of U2′s world tour, a spokesperson for the band said, adding:

He was admitted to a specialist neuro surgery unit in a Munich hospital. Bono will spend the next few days there, before returning home to recuperate. Once his condition has been assessed further, a statement will be made regarding the impact on forthcoming tour dates.

The US leg of the 360 Degrees summer tour was due to start June 3 in Salt Lake City and continue to  Europe in August, kicking off in Turin.

Bono’s energetic performances are legendary, are are the band’s successes and good works.  Bono  himself has long been committed to debt relief and the eradication of poverty and AIDS in Africa, co-founding ONE and  (RED) as well as actively supporting the Irish Hospice Foundation. Godspeed in healing, Bono.

Sounds like the tour will at least be pushed back. Hope the situation in Ireland isn’t making Bono feel more blue.

Bad news for the support He was giving to MDGs campaign, specially this year. And of course it’s too sad for the fans that were ready to attend the 360 tour.
Great issues for your blog, Lisa. Congratulations! the main page of La Figa is very good.
